Biography Edit

At some point in his career, Kessler had an affair with DI Bridges - who was married at the time - and it is heavily implied he is the biological father of her son. Kessler uses this to blackmail Bridges - she witnessed him brutally beating and killing a drug dealer, but because of her relationship with Kessler, she kept quite, claiming that she and Kessler found the dealer murdered.

He also breaks into Leo Dalton's home and makes threats towards his girlfriend Janet Mander, prompting Leo to punch him.
